Yeah, the same thing happened to me after I got the worlds highest score in Pac-Man.  It's annoying.

What the heck was that? 

Nothing at all what I would expect from the Swiss.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I was paying more attention to the Swiss bellies. I'd be much fatter than that if there was so much fine cheese and chocolate available.

A guy named Texas Shrugged Book already has his own video about it, "World leaders attend demonic ritual." I dread how Cyprian is probably going to connect this to the Olympics.

Whoever choreographed that, though, has no talent and did no justice to the legend.

Ok, who replaced the marshmallows with LSD in the Swiss Miss...
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I think the main issue is not just this one weird performance...but, the slow indoctrination and acceptance of this kind of thing.

I didn't watch the whole video...but, the parts where I stopped seemed inappropriate for polite company, especially if youngsters were in the room watching. 

I don't know the legend it is based on...but, I do know many legends...which I would rather they not see the light of day for their stupidity, paganism, and possible negative influence on the audience.

Seriously...(and I mean that seriously)...we are slowly chipping away at our humanity, our kindess, gentleness, the beauty in which we were created...and this humanity is being replaced by raunchiness, immorality, etc. 

I think they would have had better results if they flaunted that which people already associate with the Swiss...boost their tourism/economy.  I'm thinking along the lines of Heidi, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Elsie the Cow...chocolate, dancing cookoo clocks...I don't know...anything other than what they did.

Wow! Paganism is alive and well. Looks like a scary foretaste of syncretic religion in the future. There were intentional religious overtones: Gloria and alleluia as well as musical quotes from familiar hymns like "Nun danket alle Gott" (Now thank we all our God)

Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.
